Works very poorly and missing one desired feature.

Brandon&Jill, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: It does not have one key feature we have come to expect in a Blu-ray player. Other players remember where you left of on a disc, but this one does not. Otherwise, it works well. After using for less than a year, we have decided to replace this unit.

Don't Buy - Read Why - Update

Acros66, Amazon
3 October 2013
  • Summary: 1. Skips even on brand new Blu Rays - forget rentals. 2. 90 day warranty - after that labor + shipping exceeds new price 3. Network performance is dismal to absent. An Apple TV in the exact same spot is flawless on same services.

Cannot connect to Internet

William P., Newegg
4 July 2013
  • Summary: If you need something that plays Blu-ray discs and does nothing else, this player could work for you. If you were hoping to use it to stream Netflix or YouTube videos, go elsewhere. This player recognizes my home network, and can access my wireless connection, but that is as far as it goes.
  • Pros: It plays Blu-ray discs.
  • Cons: It does not connect to the Internet.

Non-functional Wi-Fi/streaming capabilities.

Brianne Johnson, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this Blu-Ray player primarily to stream hulu and Netflix on my bedroom TV. We use it rarely to watch Blu Ray discs. This product worked fairly well (with a slow, outdated menu system) for streaming these services for about 1 month until Panasonic released a new firmware version which my...

nooooo good

Alex Amoruso, Amazon
16 November 2012
  • Summary: I have owned this product for 6 months. When the firmware tried to update for the first time I could not connect to the site. After 1 call I was told that they would send me the firmware on a disk and I would have to install it myself. No problem.

Good, then firmware update made wifi unusable

Mark R, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: I got a new Blu-ray player since my Sony player never really did Netflix very well. So I did the usual looking through reviews I selected a Panasonic. One of the reasons I selected Panasonic is that my TV is also Panasonic and I was hopeful that I can use the TV remote to control the player with the...

Do not buy for streaming Netflix

Kate, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: The Panasonic dmp-bdt220 I bought because of the CNET review does not stream well. It worked fine streaming Netflix for maybe a month until I hit a mandatory firmware upgrade. It sometime works for a couple of hours and sometimes for 5 minutes before the power cable must be detached.

The Panasonic I knew is dead

E. Oskanian, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: So this is the 2nd Panasonic blu-ray player we have owned. For the record I have owned Panasonic products in my home for 25 years. This absolutely awesome rated blu-ray player does just what the last one did while streaming Netflix after a firmware update.

Netflix does not work properly even with firmware update!

Robinson, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: What a terrible disappointment that such a great player simply won't work with Netflix. Even with all of the firmware updates it has just gotten worse and worse. Unless you plan on never using the streaming feature then stay away from this player!
